Dai Manuel - before he became a personal trainer, keynote speaker, author, and a general fitness inspiration - was an obese teenager. He started fat-building when he was 9 years old and packed on pound after pound until he was 14 and weighed an astonishing 200 lbs. with a 38-inch waistline, metrics that shouldn’t belong to a kid who’s barely 5 feet 6 inches.
It wasn’t until he was 14 that he decided to change the way he lived and that’s where it all began. He built a good habit and swore by it. He lost lots of weight and built muscle over the course of 20 months all while growing 8 inches taller. He has since helped people and has been doing so for 25 years with no signs of stopping.
Today we’re going to talk about his transformation story, the habits that made him who he is today, and his opinion on the child obesity epidemic.
“If you want to be a positive role model you've gotta be doing it too.” Dai Manuel
